Tigers Ranked #3 in Latest RPI

    |

CLEMSON -- The only rating system the NCAA uses to determine selections and seedings is the RPI, or the Ratings Percentage Index. Although the NCAA does not release its official RPI, Boyd Nation has come up with an RPI index that is all but the same as the official RPI. He uses numbers from previous seasons to verify his formulas.

In the April 7 release, his RPI index has Clemson #3, despite the Tigers only being ranked as high as #13 in the polls. Clemson can thank a brutal non-conference schedule for its high RPI ranking, which already includes three games at Auburn (#1) and many other games against quality foes. The RPI only counts games against Division I teams and is for games through April 6.
